Jan 4th Day9 Flintlock

Anyone heading out today? I'm getting ready for a day of stalking. Ground is wet, snowing just a bit and windy. Good day to sneak before everything get super crunchy with the bitter cold temps moving in.

Was out for about an hour this morning, sneaking through a small patch of thick stuff.. Will head back out around 1pm and sit in a tree till dark.

I kill because I'm hunting, but killing is not the reason I go hunting.

Back for lunch. Soon as I hit the woods 2 busted me. I never saw them, and I was looking. Farther out the ridge I saw 4 feeding away from me a long ways off. Tried a sneak and they fed down over a steep drop off. Made my way up to where I last saw them go over and they were gone. Warm up, fill up the belly, and go out and sit in one of the blinds til dark. Good luck to everyone.

I'm stuck without a vehicle until next Monday or Tuesday, due to my truck deciding it didn't want to shift into reverse anymore. Need a new trans. Hoping my son doesn't have to work this weekend. If not I can at least get him to drop me off and pick me up. If not then I'm on a forced break until I get my wheels back.

Thanks. But it was bound to happen. Truck is almost 10 years old and is real close to the 200K miles mark. Its my own fault. I maintained everything on that truck, but the trans. I admittedly haven't ever had it serviced. Its the first automatic vehicle I ever owned that I've put that many miles on. Normally,(had I still been working at my other job) I would have traded that truck in 3 or 4 years ago on something new. I never kept a vehicle more than about 6 years. Since my layoff over 2 years ago, these days, I just can't afford another vehicle. I should've known better, but it is what it is. I'll just bite the bullet and pay for my mistake. At least the truck should get another lease on life once I get it back. Need to keep it at least a couple more years.

As to hunting, I'm not concerned. I have until the 28th to fill a tag. Advantage of hunting in 5C. Season is longer.
